there are at least half a dozen major controversies inside the obama administration that the president apparently didn't know anything about. today in the "wall street journal" front page headline says obama unaware as u.s. spied on world leaders. and i i believe that's true. while some americans think about mr. obama knew about fast and furious, irs, benghazi, libya, and the nasa spying while they were in -- nsa spying while they were in development. the president does not manage in a microway. he delegates often to incompetent people. most vivid example is the enormous screw up in obama care. that's the president's signature issue and he was apparently totally unaware that the roll out was broken. now, i could be wrong. i could be wrong about this. barack obama may have micromanaged all that stuff i mentioned. it's possible, but i believe improbable. last night on "60 minutes," the horror of four americans being murdered in benghazi, libya are was portrayed. lt. colonel andy wood said he warned the obama administration al qaeda was hunting the american ambassador. >> tried to assassinate the br
